Jenney Wilder is the founder of allkindsoftherapy.com, the leading digital platform for researching and comparing the Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare Industry which includes wilderness therapy, residential treatment, therapeutic boarding schools and young adult assessment, treatment and transitional living programs. Jake Weld is the Director of Admissions and Business Development for Mansfield Hall. Located in VT, WI, and OR, Mansfield Hall guides young adults with autism spectrum disorder into college and assists with academic, social, and independent living skills. Because the annual NATSAP conference is geared towards professional development and collaboration, Wilder and Weld’s presentation is highlighting the prevalence of healthcare-related searches through Google, and is providing tools for managing brand awareness and brand visibility, revealing how to gain organic web traffic and the importance of online marketing and branding on the web. This presentation is the continuation of a presentation that Weld and Wilder gave at the 2018 NATSAP conference in Tampa, Florida.
Wilder points out that “Organic Google traffic is the gold standard of website traffic and all websites want it. We will reveal how allkindsoftherapy.com is achieving this exposure, and provide participants tools they can utilize in their own treatment centers.” Weld’s experience with SEO is rooted in creating site-specific content, utilizing a variety of digital tools to evaluate digital marketing efficacy, and working with web design and SEO contractors to achieve digital visibility on the crowded web.
Wilder’s first career was working at startups during the 1990’s dot-com boom. Changing careers, she worked in education and treatment, first as a Therapeutic Consultant and now as the owner of allkindsoftherapy.com. She also has a consulting business, All Kinds of Ideas. Weld’s experience includes executive leadership within both traditional and therapeutic programs for students and young adults with social and academic weaknesses. The quality, digital health, transparency, and branding of the Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare Industry continues to be a shared focus, ever since Weld and Wilder first collaborated with Shayna Abraham, MA, in co-founding the Therapeutic Consulting Association (TCA) in 2016.
“We know parents turn to the web, first, when they are faced with complex family challenges. We also know that the professionals and organizations which can provide help and support during those challenging times are not always the most tech-savvy or digitally-minded. We hope this presentation allows programs to put more great solutions at the fingertips of families in crisis,” says Jake Weld. Weld and Wilder hope to share their collective experience, insight, and ideas with other professionals looking to improve their brand’s digital reputation and visibility.
